Ukraine continues to experience historic transformation since the 2014 Revolution of Dignity. While the country faces numerous political and economic challenges, the potential of Ukraine as an investment destination is immense: Ukraine is one of the largest markets in Europe with a great capacity of natural and human resources. Thus, the creation of favorable development conditions for the business environment in Ukraine is one of the most urgent task of the government.
While Ukraine has been showing the largest investment potential in recent years, the country still faces structural challenges and more work needs to be done.
This discussion will bring together top experts, practitioners, and policymakers to discuss the current investment climate and the most effective means for moving forward.
We hope you can join us for this timely discussion.
